Earthworm Joe

Today's app of the day is Earthworm Joe.

Earthworm Joe is a great game that emulates the look and feel of the classic Nintendo game and watch series from the 80's. This is a near perfect emulation of an LCD screen, and although it might seem a step in the wrong direction to be marveling about a High Def display imitating a grey and black LCD, there is absolutely a certain charm about it.

The game play is as simple as it comes. You can move your character (a worm) left and right, as you try to make it to the other side of the screen without getting swooped by birds. As expected, the game play becomes more difficult as your score increases.

 If you want to feel some nostalgia and experience, then check out Earthworm How,

In the words of the developers:

This game is an emulation of handheld LCD games from the 80s, but this is a new game based on those existing games, developed to look and feel like those retro classics. The story is about an earthworm, who wants to visit his neighbour, but angry birds try to catch him on the fields.
How to play the game:
- Take Earthworm Joe, our hero, to the other side of the field
- The field is swarming with angry birds, who want to eat Joe for dinner
- After you leave your hole, you cannot go back, the birds already saw you!
- There's a pond before the other hole, where you can only cross when a turtle appears. Watch out, cause the birds can catch you before crossing too!
- For every successful crossing, you get 10 points, for each move, 1 points
- The gameplay gets harder after each 50 points, and a bit easier after each 100 points
- The game features Scoreloop high score table support

Wish - shopping made fun - and easy - and cheap!

These days sites like Amazon or eBay make buying and selling online quick and easy. Unfortunately, sometimes the sheer breadth of products available (everything on earth!) makes it difficult to impulse buy or get the same experience one haves when wandering around a shop or past windows. Luckily, apps now exist to replicate that experience.

The best of the lot is Wish - which has the tagline 'shopping made fun' which could not be more true! When opening the app there are lots of categories to choose from, allowing you to pick the type of products you want to browse and going from there. Buying and checking out is only ever a few clicks away and if you are not careful you will very quickly load up on more products than you need!

I've launched sites that help out with buying cheap gadgets in the past, and it was heavily inspired by apps such as Wish which really allow someone to sit back and take pleasure in the shopping experience again! Download Wish now!

Cosmic Cow

Today's app of the day is Cosmic Cow.

"Endless" games are very in vogue at the moment, whether it be endless running, endless jumping or endless flapping, there are plenty of ways to get unlimited, and challenging gaming fixes. That doesn't mean that there aren't great new games being created in the genre, with Cosmic Cow being one such example.

In essence, Cosmic Cow combines two great styles of game play, one being a side scrolling endless-type game, and the other being the classic side scrolling space ship shooter, popularised in numerous incarnations on 8 and 16 bit consoles of decades past. As a "cosmic cow" (can't help but love it!), the player has to navigate through space, shooting or dodging asteroids and other attacking spaceships. The cow can collect a variety of objects to earn points - though mainly interesting foods that just happen to be floating through space. As points are accumulated, the player can also collect coins to spend on a v…
